Early returns on Manny Machado, MLB shortstop

Before this season, Manny Machado was a talented young player who’s remained something less than elite due to injuries and a bat that was closer to average than star. He added offense to his game this season and earned his status as a star-level player. Debuting just a month removed from his 20th birthday back in 2012, Machado combined an above-average bat with amazing defense...

Is Cal Ripken Jr.’s Record The Hardest To Break?

At that point, you basically compile a list of players vying to be the best and ultimately break a certain record. No record is easy to break, but there are some certain ones that you will see generations pass without being broken. For...

Manny Machado should not be moved again from his natural position

Manny Machado was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles to play shortstop. Picked third overall in 2010 behind a guy named Bryce Harper, Machado was set to join Cal Ripken among baseball’s best offensive shortstops. If there was ever a place for the legacy of the power-hitting, tall shortstop to be carried on, it was in Baltimore. Machado was a shortstop in the minor leagues, and he...

The Orioles’ frustrating season

It wasn’t supposed to be this way for the Orioles. After a second trip to the postseason in three years, one in which they got about one-sixth of a season from Matt Wieters and half a season from Manny Machado, making the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1996-1997 was the clear goal. It hasn’t happened that way. The team recently dropped six straight...

For the Baltmore Orioles, it was fun while it lasted

The Orioles were not a team of destiny a season ago. They were just really damn good.    Ninety-six wins is evidence enough, but a club that's able to run away with a perennially close AL East—with Manny Machado, Matt Wieters and Chris Davis all absent during the grind of September and October—is certainly one to be respected.  Had it not been for a historically...

J.J. Hardy’s contract could turn into albatross for Orioles

Quickly, and without much fanfare, J.J. Hardy and the Baltimore Orioles agreed to a three-year extension on the eve of last year’s American League Championship Series. It seemed like a good enough deal at the time. For $40 million over those three years, the Orioles would have themselves a Gold Glove winning player who hit with power from a premium position. The New York Yankees...

Video: Jonathan Schoop blasts 484-foot home run

You could be forgiven if you haven’t heard of Jonathan Schoop. But after what he did Wednesday night, you might want to get familiar with the Baltimore Orioles’ second baseman. During an 8-5 win over the Kansas City Royals, Schoop took Johnny Cueto deep, and when we say deep, we mean deep. In the top of the fourth, the 23-year-old Curocaoan turned around a 1-2 fastball and deposited...
